    Interview

    Had a first round interview on campus. It was very basic behavioral questions and some why BB&T type questions. About a week later I was contacted to take a few personality tests. After that I was flown out to their headquarters in Winston Salem where I had one day of interviews. There was small written portion followed by two behavioral interviews. They are really trying to find fit more than anything.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BB&T in February 2012.

    One 30 minute initial interview on campus. Followed by doing a personality test and a superday where you have a couple of interviews and a case study. If you are on a specialty track you may have one more phone interview after the superday. Big focus on culture and "fit", nothing too technical. Great employer.
